The Worst XI of 2019 has now been revealed following The Best awards

FC Internazionale v Udinese Calcio - Serie A

The FIFPro World XI for 2019 was revealed during Monday night’s The Best awards.

Alisson was selected in goal; Marcelo, Sergio Ramos, Virgil van Dijk and Matthijs de Ligt in defence; Luka Modric and Frenkie De Jong in midfield; Cristiano Ronaldo and Eden Hazard on the wings, and Kylian Mbappe and Lionel Messi upfront.

A few surprising inclusion - Marcelo over Roberson?! - but, on the whole, fairly predictable.

But what about a Worst XI?

Spanish newspaper Marca have asked their readers to vote - and the results are now in.

Goalkeeper: Loris Karius

Karius made a calamitous mistake while playing for Besiktas against Slovan Bratislava, which probably explains why he’s been voted as the Worst XI’s goalkeeper.


Right-back: Stephan Lichtsteiner

The 35-year-old was very disappointing at Arsenal and left the Emirates Stadium after only one season in the summer. He now plays for FC Augsburg.

Arsenal FC v Brighton & Hove Albion - Premier League

Centre-back: Shkodran Mustafi

Disastrous at times last season, Mustafi can count his lucky stars that he’s still an Arsenal player.

Arsenal v Olympique Lyonnais - Emirates Cup

Centre-back: Phil Jones

One of the worst centre-backs in Europe in 2019? Seems a bit harsh. He hasn’t been amazing but not sure he deserved a spot in this team alongside Mustafi.


Left-back: Layvin Kurzawa

Paris Saint-Germain’s France international is in at left-back.


Central midfield: Renato Sanches

The Portuguese midfielder left Bayern Munich for Lille in the summer after failing to convince at the Allianz Arena.


Central midfield: Fred

The Brazilian has endured an abysmal start to his Manchester United career. Was he really worth £52 million?


Central midfield: Philippe Coutinho

A top player but his move to Barcelona didn’t work out as planned. The Brazilian playmaker is now at Bayern Munich on loan.


Forward: Quincy Promes

Despite scoring just three goals in 49 appearances for Sevilla last season, Promes was signed by Ajax in the summer.


Forward: Javier Pastore

Pastore joined AS Roma from PSG last year and only made 17 appearances in his debut campaign with the Giallorossi.

AS Roma v Istanbul Basaksehir F.K.: Group J - UEFA Europa League

Forward: Alexis Sanchez

The worst signing in Manchester United’s recent history. Now with Inter Milan.


And here’s the Worst XI in formation…
